With the new rains, many of the roads become inaccessible but the water wonderland that is experienced from the air is phenomenal. Waves of vibrant pink flamingos return to the drenched pan. Day trips to the 1,000-year-old cluster of trees known as Baines Baobabs form part of the exciting activities on offer.
